Preparedness and Safety
Family Preparedness Guides
The goal of a
Family Preparedness Guide is to arm you with resources and
information you may need should Florida encounter a natural or
man-made threat. Please take a few minutes to review these guides with
your family. We urge you to take the necessary steps to prepare your
home in case of a disaster. By doing so, your family will be better
prepared to handle whatever emergency arises.
Your family may not be together when disaster
strikes, so it is important to plan in advance: how you will contact
one another; how you will get back together, and what you will do in
You may also want to inquire about
emergency plans at places where your family spends time:
work, daycare and school.
If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help create one. Talk to
your neighbors about how you can work together in the event of an
emergency. You will be better prepared to safely reunite your family
and loved ones during an emergency if you think ahead and
communicate with others in advance.
